Atlanta rapper Gunna faces some setbacks from rapper Baby Tate, her fans and the LGBTQ + community Friday morning (January 7). After the release of his new studio album DS4EVER, fans rushed to listen to the project, and when they came to his “Thought I Was Playing” collaboration with 21 Savage, there were many who mishandled his lyrics and thought he was rejecting transgender people.

“These boys are a bunch of p *** ies, they are no different than a trend,” Gunna raps on the song according to the lyrics page on Genius. Baby Tate and hundreds of others, however, thought Gunna said, “These boys are a bunch of p *** ies, they are no different than a trance,” which would have been ridiculously unhealthy to say in the chorus to one of the album’s most anticipated songs.

“Couldn’t you have found something else to say?” asked Baby Tate in a tweet. “This man has been using derogatory LGBT words in his music for so long and I’m tired.”

Fans of the rising rapper backed her up, but it was revealed that she soon after may have heard the lyrics incorrectly.

“You will not bully me into speaking the cause of transgender people,” Baby Tate said as people began to call her her mistake. “You did the same shit when I shouted uzi. If the tweet causes more transphobia, then I delete it, but I still think I heard what I heard, and he was wrong if that was what he said. I will always stand up for the LGBT community. Idc. “
